The 12th Annual Sun Peaks Firefighters’ Charity Gala was a resounding success.
Over 250 people attended the “mountain formal” gala which raised more than $30,000 to support the Sun Peaks Volunteer Firefighters Society, the Sun Peaks Education Society and the Sun Peaks Speed Skiing Club.
Proceeds came from the evening’s ticket sales as well as live and silent auctions held throughout the night.
Highlights of the night included the Henry Small Band, and the frantic bidding for live auction items featuring helicopter skiing at Mike Wiegele’s, an autographed Colin James guitar, a catered dinner for ten, Tim Hortons Brier tickets and a couple’s getaway at Sparkling Hills Resort. When all was said and done over 200 items were sold to the highest bidders.
